Jews: Never forget Trump for remembering our Jerusalem

The United Nations, naturally, disapproved. Pope Francis, more enigmatically, protested, too, when President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. By 2019’s end, the Trump administration plans to open the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. There’s a reason Muslims living in Israel proper – 1.5 million of them – don’t migrate to the […] …

Moscow’s agents have always backed Dem candidates

Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections should not come as a surprise. Moscow, both under Soviet and neo-Soviet (Putinist) rule, has attempted to influence U.S. elections since the 1920s – usually to the benefit of the Democratic Party.
